We would like to take this opportunity to again thank all delegates for your attendance and contribution to the BARNARDS workshop last week.

It was a pleasure to meet those of you we haven’t previously met and to reconnect with those we have.

We hope the workshop strengthened the bonds between the global network that is being established to meet the aims of the BARNARDS project.

We would like to wish our Rwandan hosts a special thank you. Our tour around Kabgayi Hospital was one of the highlights of the week. We were very fortunate to see so much of the truly beautiful country that is Rwanda and experience the welcoming and friendly culture.
